Note: I replaced the original photograph with a Lens Corrected version at 11 AM, PST. Personally I like the wide angle effect of the original post.

The reflection in the window is the icing on this cake !

As I really didn't understand your com yesterday, just few words to tell you that there is nothing madantaroy leaving words if the images, the work doesnt "talk" to you. You are free not to write words. I prefer nothing to read rather that systematic coms.

Brilliant. The color is my morning wake-up. Very vibrant and vital !
The crop, the angle, the perspective, the reflection....ahhh, pure art !!

Don from Spokane, United States

The exaggerated colors and the slight tilt to the shot combine to make a surreal feeling image that is very impressive and eye-catching. Super job of processing and presentation.

25 Aug 2011 3:14pm

@Don: Thanks. I had to decide whether I wanted a straight lamppost or a straight horizon. I like not trying to correct all of the inherent problems of a wide angle lens. (PS - Don, I went back and put in a lens corrected version.)

Fabulous perspective and amazing tonality! Such a strong and intriguing atmosphere! Wonderful work!

Marie LC from Entre montagnes et Bretagne, France

Colors are absolutely magnificent Jack but I have a small regret that the horizon is tilted so it's a pity for a so fantastic photo!

25 Aug 2011 5:45pm

@Marie LC: I wanted to keep the lamp post perpendicular, and I didn't want to go into Lens Corrections and tinker. I personally like this effect of a wide angle lens. I have another photograph of this taken with my 28-300mm lens; it has none of these problems, but I just don't like it as well. (However, I did go back and replace the photograph with a lens corrected version.)

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Reflection in the window Ronnie?
No. no, the fairly lights around the frame are the icing on the cake :-)

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A beautiful shot, Jack. I think this is an HDR. If so, how many frames did you use here? I love the colors you captured.

25 Aug 2011 6:01pm

@Steve Rice: 5 frames - straight shot, one and two stops over and under.

This could be claustrophobic but isn't intrigues the mind and invites one to walk to the end of the wharf....Very Mogdaliani I believe
